What if the moon wasn’t the pristine untouched celestial body that we thought it was when Apollo 11 landed, what if it had already been used as a nuclear testing ground and demonstration of power by the US and the Soviets. Well, that’s what could have happened if the secret USAF Project A119 had gone ahead in 1959, this is the story of that and the yet to be famous person that accidentally revealed the top-secret project.
